A lot of content will be available at launch for the upcoming racing game, Dirt 5. From a much more narrative-focused single player that features the voice talents of gaming legends Troy Baker and Nolan North to online progression, there’s a lot of content that will keep fans of the franchise coming back for a good while, and that’s not even counting the updates and DLC that will probably launch after the game’s release. With the Xbox Series X/S versions of the game arriving at launch, Codemasters has promised that save data will transfer over from the Xbox One version to the Series X/S.
However, if you’re planning on getting the PS4 version, you’ll have to start all over again on PS5, as the PlayStation versions of Dirt 5 won’t support cross-save between the two systems. When a Twitter user asked if progress will carry over from PS4 to PS5, the official Dirt Twitter account responded by saying that progress won’t be carried over.
Currently on Xbox, all progress can be carried over between generations. On PlayStation, your Playgrounds creations can be carried over, but other game progress (Career, currency, saved liveries) cannot. If that changes, we'll let you know!

The news comes only a few days after it was announced that PS4 save data wouldn’t transfer over to the PS5 version of Yakuza: Like A Dragon, but will with the Xbox One and Series X/S systems.
Dirt 5 will arrive on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 6. Those who purchase the current-gen version of the game will receive a next-gen upgrade for free.
